Social Media Pounces On Tyra Banks After #BlackPanther Tweet

Published: Wednesday 21st Feb 2018 by David

When Tyra Banks‘America’s Next Top Model’ impacted the world in 2003 it did so in a world in which its audience was silent…at least for the most part.

Today, thanks to social media and the voice it has given consumers/viewers, that has all changed.

What this means for Banks’ entertaining but occasionally baffling show? Trouble.

For, said viewers are now using social media to remind the super mogul that they haven’t forgotten about the way she and her team of judges treated the show’s contestants.

What has any of this has to do with ‘Black Panther’?

    I saw that video, truly shameful of Tyra to have sat there as a black woman and try to humiliate that girl for wearing her natural hair all because the white people on Tyra’s panel were uncomfortable.

      Naomi Campbell would have put all them panel b****** on blast. Tyra was very bias.

    I would love to see Tyra climb herself out of this hole.
    I remember this episode and I felt bad for Yaya. What’s wrong with her embracing herself and who she outside of a photo shoot?
    Tyra is a mess.

      I mean, it’s crazy when you think about a lot of the oppression that has taken place within this program that were not televised.

    Tyra is shameful.

    This is young people who haven’t experienced anything in life are the ones talking. When you get in the work place and in the industry you’ll understand what tyra is talking about

    • Tim Brown February 21, 2018

      NLT unfortunately

    • Love February 21, 2018

      And exactly what is Tyra talking about?

    • Meme February 21, 2018

      This has nothing to do with experience or being young. Tyra uses any opportunity to make everything about herself. Her picture had ZERO to do with black panther. She deserved to be lit.

    Tyra owes nothing to nobody!!!! She should tell anyone that opposes her tweet, TO KICK F***** ROCKS!!!!

  10. Light February 21, 2018

    Roast her ass. I don’t like her at all.

    Tyra has to make everything about her. I used to like her until I started to notice a very negative self-indulgent and contradictory pattern of behavior from her. Over the years she’s proclaimed to be all about women-empowerment, self love, and defying beauty standards… only to bash other women on ANTM and exclusively apply those “positive” and affirming concepts to herself when she gains weight or takes bad photos.

    Even on the new season of ANTM, she’s still being her narcissistic self and has done away with the age limit… why….? Because she’s now older and it makes her feel better about HERSELF. When she was in her early 30’s, she didn’t want a 40-year contestant on the show, but now it’s okay. Same with including more full-figured models. She seems to use false proclamations of positivity and inclusion as a trendy way to push her own image and build her fledgling brand. And don’t get me started on her playing victim with Naomi and having this weird love-hate relationship with other black models…

      Tyra Banks is a legend. She’s not perfect like all of us. Sounds like a lot of petty hatin to me. Criticize Donald Trump and his hypocrisy.

      • Kathryn February 22, 2018

        You can criticize more than one thing at a time. What a dumb comment…

  12. ICONIC February 21, 2018

    I see in this day and time comprehension is something that is rare! Tyra wasn’t shaming YaYa for wearing African attire, she was telling her if she’s going to wear it, be fashionable with it! Glam it up a bit after all you are on America’s Next Top model!

    • 👹 February 21, 2018

      No you chose to pay attention to what made your statement relevant. When you also add that she said “ you seem defensive” that was very negative especially when you’re the one constantly beinging up my culture

  13. Princess Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) February 21, 2018

    I hear no lies from Tyra.

  14. Dorothy mott February 21, 2018

    Tyra’s there to allow you a chance you can’t expect anymore. As far as shaming anyone if you don’t want her advice go home.

    Tyra did not put down yaya for dressing afro centric. The other female judge did. Tyra was correcting yaya for talking back the judges about how she felt about the style. What us everyone talking about.
